ARMY WAR COLL CARLISLE BARRACKS PA
Pagination or Media Count:
To paraphrase British Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill, never have so few done so much for so many with so little. That statement aptly describes the ministry of chaplain resource managers. This paper tells their story. It also describes the numerous accomplishments of the Army chaplaincy during the two decades following the Vietnam War and the struggle of chaplains to obtain adequate resources to perform ministry. Although the Army readily acknowledges the contributions made by the Chaplain Corps towards overall mission accomplishment, almost nothing has been written about managing or resourcing the chaplaincy. Commanders and UMTS should understand something about the minimum essential requirements necessary for implementing and administering the Command Master Religious Program at all levels. This paper reviews those needs and makes some recommendations for future resourcing. It discusses the development and support of Chaplain Corps organization, administration, funding, information management, logistics, and religious facilities.
